Web3 Opportunities Creatives Should Know About

Things change quickly nowadays.

Every other day, it seems like there’s a life-changing new program coming out or a new artificial intelligence technology that’s set to revolutionize everything from blog writing to the way we make our shopping lists.

So, yes. In this digital age we live in, things tend to move pretty fast.

But instead of shaking our cane at it, why not use this change as an opportunity? The more things change, the more opportunities open up, especially for those in creative careers.

One of those “next new things” that everyone is talking about is Web3.

We’re willing to bet you’ve heard of it too. 

And whether we embrace it or not, it looks like it’s here to stay. As creative people, it would be a good idea for our careers if we jump on the Web3 bandwagon and strike while the iron is hot.

There’s a whole new world awaiting you in Web3, so why not educate yourself about this new platform and develop the skills to start creating there too?

Web3? What’s that?

Simply put, Web3 is the next generation of the internet.

While Web2 (our current version of the internet) began to allow its users to interact through social media comments and send and receive things like articles, posts, and recommendations from each other, Web3 takes things one step further.

The internet in its current form allows third parties to control your information and data. 

For example, if you’ve ever been talking about cinnamon vanilla-scented bath bombs only to have Bath & Body Works ads start bombarding your social media feed, you know how annoying it can be to have companies hijacking your phone’s speakers and tracking your web browsing.

Web3 aims to put the internet back into the hands of its users. It does this by using decentralized networks where the users– not large corporations– own the internet and all of the data stored on it.

Using cool technology like blockchains, cryptocurrencies, and NFTs, Web3 puts the power back in the user’s hands in the form of ownership of their own data.

It’s complicated, sure, but it’s well worth some research, because along with Web3 comes plenty of new opportunities for creatives like you. 

Here are some of our favorite ways creatives can work in Web3.

Create NFT art

NFTs (non-fungible tokens) is a new form of digital art that is revolutionizing the art world and how artists everywhere are selling their work.

Like cryptocurrency, NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are digital assets that can’t be replicated but can be bought, sold, and traded just like any other tangible thing that you own.

NFTs are tokenized too, which means that each one is unique. And an NFT can be anything. From video game avatars to baseball cards to whatever your creativity can conjure up.

Because the data is stored on a blockchain, this means artists are able to take ownership of their art. So, if you create an NFT and someone buys it, you are paid directly and, because it’s tokenized, no one else can take credit for your work.

Sounds like a sweet deal, doesn’t it?

Artists everywhere are creating NFTs and selling them either separately or as part of a collection, with some NFTs going for millions of dollars.

There are companies already who are looking for NFT artists. Coca-Cola and Taco Bell have enjoyed enormous success by launching NFT collections, so having this skill set in your portfolio can only make you more valuable to clients in the coming years.

And remember, NFTs can be anything. So, musicians and writers, you’re not left out of the action.

Become a web developer/solidity developer

Not many people have heard of a solidity developer.

And that’s okay. It’s kind of a new thing. 

We’ll try to explain it as simply as possible.

A solidity developer is a blockchain developer who works with smart contracts on Ethereum-based applications.

What’s a smart contract? Good question!

A smart contract is a self-executing contract with both the buyer and seller’s terms of agreement written directly into the lines of code. A solidity developer creates these contracts and then deploys and audits them as needed.

And if you’re a good web developer with experience in Python or Javascript, you already have many of the skills needed for an entry-level position as a solidity developer.

All you need is a basic knowledge of the Ethereum Blockchain and you’ll have everything you need to learn the programming language needed to start your solidity developer career.

The time is now to start adding these skills to your portfolio. With Web3 poised as the future of the internet, it’s guaranteed that knowing how to develop smart contracts will be essential for your career.

And with more and more transactions happening over Web3, you can be sure that there will be plenty of people who will be needing your services.

Become a Web3 writer.

Just because products and services are on Web3 doesn’t mean that they won’t need writing too.

Copywriting for Web3 is just like copywriting for any other platform. You’ll be writing blogs, pieces for product designers, content creators, and more.

The only exception is that your content will be published on decentralized platforms or websites that utilize blockchain technology.

If this sounds like a sweet gig to you, then it’s best to brush up on all parts of the Web3 landscape, like blockchains, cryptocurrency, and NFTs. Whether you’re a copywriter, a technical writer, or a content writer, your skills are needed.

It helps to narrow down your speciality and learn all you can. So, if cryptocurrency is what you want to write about, learn everything you can about it, the way it works, the people who use it, and the specific lingo they use when they talk about it.

Whatever you choose, find your niche and run with it, because the opportunities are there and some additional knowledge never hurts.

Be a digital designer

Designing for Web3 isn’t that much different from designing anywhere else.

You’re still using your eye for design and your creativity, just in a slightly different environment.

Even if a website is in a decentralized network, it’s still going to need a good graphic designer to make it look as attractive as possible for potential consumers.

And not just websites. 

Digital designers are needed to create anything that needs a visual identity, like platforms, apps, social media banners, and customized avatars for gaming. If you do well enough, you could even find yourself as the creative art director at a Web3 company.

The possibilities are endless.

And there’s a lack of designers in the Web3 space, so get out there! Your talents are sorely needed.

Web3 is calling …

There are plenty of Web3 career opportunities out there if you know where to look.

The best way to start is to learn as much as you can about Web3, blockchain technology, and cryptocurrencies.

Because educating yourself about Web3 now and building a great portfolio while it’s still a relatively new thing is a great way to get a jumpstart over your competition, and it could help you future-proof your service offerings.
